We look for applicants with a distinct literary voice, experience in personal essay and critical essay writing, and a desire to interrogate knowledge production and circulation (considering such questions as: what constitutes “criticism”? who is “criticism” for? what are the positions of the “critical,” and the ends to which the work of “criticism” aspires?). We are pleased to offer modest stipends to our staff columnists. This is a remote position, so reliability and self-motivation are a must.

 

To apply, email a resume, cover letter, an essay sample, and three essay series pitches including brief descriptions to suiyi@wintertangerine.com.
